Past or Past Continuous
In an exam the following sentence needed to be corrected:
Mary (arrive) arrived
to the station ,she (get)got off
the train, her friends (wait) waited
The above is what I wrote but "waited" was corrected and replaced by "were waiting".
Am I wrong or can both be right? If I am wrong, is there a rule that I can use because I am confused.
Thanks in advance.
